Real estate in Lucas became important in 1841 when settlers from all over the south, and a couple northern states, decided to tame it. It is known that the area was settled from the time of the Clovis Man, up to 10,000 years ago. From the advent of the first white settlers, the Indians fought them, but the fight stopped around 1844. The population really grew then. Cotton, corn, wheat and cattle were the crops the Lucas properties settlers grew. Founding families include the Fitzhughs and their descendants, McKinneys and Stinsons. Churches were built before gristmills were. When the churches moved, the buildings were turned into schools. The population in 1870 was 14,000. The town's businesses numbered a blacksmith, general store, barbershop and pharmacy.
